Posted on 08/01/2013 2:36:40 PM PDT by ConservativeInPA
Michele Catalano was looking for information online about pressure cookers. Her husband, in the same time frame, was Googling backpacks. Wednesday morning, six men from a joint terrorism task force showed up at their house to see if they were terrorists. Which prompts the question: How'd the government know what they were Googling?

They’re lucky they did not have a dog.
No domestic spying of course, lies, lies, lies
Ooh, I have a new way for single women to meet men: start some internet buzz about making bombs out of vibrators. Then, when they do some shopping on the internet, they can get visited by 6-12 young, healthy men in good physical shape who have jobs with good benefits and retirement plans.
What is needed here is a spambot army of about 1,000,000 computers to hit Google at random using those terms. That will keep them busy for a while.
Maybe this could be a built-in feature of Linux distributions.

This is the TSA version of strip searching grandmas.
I like it, overwhelm the peekers.
Okay, THAT is funny.
My job is a real pressure cooker. Yesterday afternoon, my boss blew up at me. She had run out of fertilizer for her office plants and blamed me. That woman is a real terror. My morale is being ground down to zero. It felt like my head was going to explode. On top of that, somebody spilled a box of paper clips in the break room and it felt like I was walking on ball bearings. After work, I had a couple beers with my buddy Mohammed down at the el-Tikrit Bar and Grill. We both had pulled-pork submarine sandwiches. They're called the Obama Special and they are the bomb. One is plenty but two is suicide, which is why I had to loosen the buttons on my vest. Then we played a game of darts. They have those new darts shaped like little guided missiles but I couldn't hit the target. My buddy Sam is way better at launching the missiles than anybody. He throws them so fast that they sound like a low-flying plane...
Was John Corey there?
"Ok, ok, I got it, I got it" [Joe Pesci voice]. A front company, say Universal Exports, buys a Google content-based ad for things like "pressure cooker" [crikey, now I'M on the list!], etc., then captures the IP address of those who download their image as part of the ad content. Piece of cake from there ...
Remember the crap about how they'rd only spying on people in the US with cause - great cause - and a judge and all that crap... This proves they're spying on all of us... on everything we do, say, or buy. All the time.

Don’t you think just being associated with FR puts a person in far more surveillance than any google searches?

Arabic would not be my first choice...
Of course, everyone who actually loads that page, or for that matter, this one, is ALSO suspect :)
DHS...good at closing the barn door after the horse is gone.
If you do those searches on a work computer, you might expect to be reported and investigated. Check the latest update from Atlanticwire on this and you’ll see what really happened.
Google is a government operation. So is Facebook.
Already exists in Firefox. It is called TrackMeNot. While it does not send out specific requests to a search engine, it sends out random querries at a user set rate. It is available for Windows users as well.
